Greater Media talk WTKK/Boston host Jay Severin will return to the airwaves on Tuesday (June 2) after being suspended on April 30 due to controversial remarks about illegal aliens and swine flu.
A statement from Greater Media says, "We have had conversations with Jay Severin over the past several weeks about his hurtful, inappropriate remarks. He understands that we will not accept this type of commentary on our airwaves in the future."
The statement also addresses any freedom of speech concerns raised by people critical of the company's move. "We want to emphasize that WTKK still strongly supports an open and spirited debate about the many issues our community and our country currently face. There will no doubt be times when people disagree with what Jay says. Our goal is to maintain a level of discourse that is compelling and thought-provoking, yet civil and respectful."
